MOSCOW, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian ombudsman Vladimir Lukin said Russia does not fully meet its refugee protection commitments.
"Such 'stability' gives reasons to believe that Russia does not fully meet the international commitments that stem from its’ joining relevant conventions," the ombudsman went on.
At the same time, he noted that the Federal Migration Service's attitude to refugees "has taken a turn for the better." He said his conclusion was based on the recent inspections of several temporary detention facilities for migrants.
According to Lukin, the issue of legalizing compatriots from former Soviet republics and granting Russian citizenship to them had lost none of its urgency. Also, he called the automatic deportation of foreigners for minor administrative offenses on the strength of computer database information “a serious problem”.
